Dear Families,

Here we are in the last days of March--and I think all of us are quite tired of winter! Here's hoping spring pays us a visit soon!

Silly McGilly, our leprechaun, has gone back to Ireland--the children will miss him and the silly tricks he played on us.  Thanks to our parents who donated items for our green snacks on Friday. I haven't forgotten that I owe you pictures on Bloomz!  Thanks for your patience!

This week we are finishing up on learning about the seasons and will begin to look at weather in more detail.

Our chick eggs are officially incubating! We talked about what oviparous animals are--animals that hatch from eggs-and we sorted them. Ask your child about them and what incubating means! :)  We visited the eggs in their temporary home and we will be learning about the life cycle of a chicken.  Please pray our eggs hatch and we have some little chicks! I am a very nervous mother hen right now! :)  Each day the children color in an egg on a calendar to cound down the days until they hatch.  We also have caterpillars in our room and will also learn about the life cycle of a butterfly.

We will be completing a mini-unit on fairy tales this week since it is a short week.  We will be looking at all different versions of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  We will be sequencing, making story maps, looking at cause and effect and comparing and contrasting the stories.  We will also be making "porridge" (oatmeal) and analyzing our data about who liked it/disliked it!
Love, Mrs. Hayes
